Thanks to all who have humored my stupid ideas.
Never a stupid idea.....this hole thread started on a "stupid idea".
You'd need a LOT of holes which defeats the purpose of the ash catcher.
I just found at a garage sale an old 18" round camping grill that will set in the bottom of the drum as my new ash pan!!
